Elias Aggelopoulos

Since I was a kid, about three decades ago, I’ve been interested in everything that had to do with books, music, newspapers, magazines, science and technology gadgets. So, when it was time to take decisions on my professional future, about two decades ago, I tried to combine most of my interests.

I studied mass media and journalism at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (www.uoa.gr) and in 1996 I started working as a newspaper science and technology editor.

Since then I’ve worked in several newspapers, magazines and websites. As a science and technology editor I’ve worked at Eleftherotypia (www.enet.gr) , Makedonia and Thessaloniki newspapers, e-one.gr and go-online.gr portals, Netizen magazine, for which I was editor-in-chief, and Popular Science magazine.

In addition, I have worked as a newspaper managing copy editor in several Greek newspapers, as communication manager for members of the Greek Parliament and for Thessaloniki's Integrated Transport Authority, among others. Furthermore, I’m a lecturer of Journalism at private educational institutions.

Since October 2012 I’m working as science editor in Science View, a science communication and popularisation consultancy. I’m now working as a managing copy editor at Espresso newspaper and I am editor-in-chief of the E&T magazine of the Greek general secretariat for research and technology.
